Ike has become Tim Baker's signature character, and I believe this charismatic character is here to stay. Ike is an edgy, earthy, sexy, and believable retired Navy Seal who bends the rules a little, but all for the right reasons. He's good to women, he fights injustice that has been done to the downtrodden, and he loves kids and animals. He's Robin Hood on a Harley. Ike is not an empty GI Joe-type cartoon character in literature. Ike has great commercial potential. He is a character from Tim Baker's novels who could carry a TV series and make it work for years. If the right people in the entertainment industry take notice of Tim Baker's work, the sky is the limit for the popularity of his signature character Ike.
Eyewitness Blues is an entertaining and fast-moving read that I gladly recommend to anyone.
Really enjoyed this book,very entertaining. Some pretty serious issues with quite a few chuckles. The author did a great job with these characters giving the reader a mind's eye snapshot of who these people are. Gotta love Ike and Brewski. Don't know if I want to slap Martin around or just pinch his cherub cheeks.
The book flows lightly, rapidly, and I was just caught up in it. It is really like a breath of fresh air. I will be checking for other work from this author. He has a nice turn of a phrase.
Recommend this book. It is entertainment.
This one was a bit of a slow burn. It almost felt like 2 separate books, one laying the groundwork and the other bringing all the parts together.
The first Stephen King book I ever read was It, way back in the 80's.
Since then, random scenes that King describes, locations I've never been to, have stuck with me. He wrote the places so well, they were permanently burned into my imagination. That's what this book felt like to me. It drew pictures in my head while I was reading - I saw the Fireside, I pictured the house along the swamp, I felt like I was Martin watching the car jacking.
Another very well done book.
In this novel, a terribly depressed young man, Martin Aquino, has become entangled with a mob boss in Rhode Island. His life sucks and he is at his wit’s end when he decides to report witnessing a murder to get enrolled in the witness protection program. Baker draws his characters with a deft hand and we see early on why Martin has to make the choices he does. In an action-packed series of events, Martin ends up on Ike’s boat, The Knight’s Mare, in St. Augustine. Almost immediately, Martin senses his life has turned around for the best…but has it? There is so much more yet to come.
Martin’s not always so bright, but that’s okay, Ike has his back! There’s a whole other cast of colorful characters in Flagler Beach for the mob to deal with. If you are looking for a fun read that will keep you turning pages just to see what craziness is going to happen next, this book is a great choice. There is a rare hilarity to the antics of Ike and his “associates” that is certain to keep you entertained.

Martin was born on the wrong side of luck. Lorenzo and his boss, Don Gammino featured in this run of bad luck and set a string of events in motion. The future for Martin looked grim.
Mercedez had a soft spot for Martin and she proved it later on in the book, without giving too much away. Ike was a mysterious character, tough and ready to help anyone who needed it, I wanted him to adopt me after reading a few chapters where he featured.
The plot was strong and flowed sweetly with the odd hiccup or surprise for me, the reader, just enough to keep me reading.
I recommend this book of Tim Bakers and I will be reading more of his work in the future.
